St. Bonaventure Church

Plymouth, Massachusetts

Negative edge single-piece granite font


Designed by:  ADA Architecture + Interior


This font operates as a negative edge font, except during Easter. At that time, the decorative floor cover is removed, exposing a lower semi-immersion pool. The equipment was designed by Water Structures so that with the turn of two valves, the upper font fills the immersion pool. After the Easter baptisms are performed, the font is returned to its normal single bowl operation. The plumbing and support for the granite pedestal bowl were built in to the font shell at Water Structures’ facility.
